Hockey teams have traditionally worn (and sold) only home & road jerseys. But in the last few years, many franchises have added an alternate uniform or two to the lineup, in an effort to spice things up on the ice & move out more merchandise to the fans.
However, the Las Vegas Wranglers may have overdone it a bit.
The LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL skates over news that the minor league club has shown off up to 15 different jersey designs during its brief 5-year existence.
While some specially designs have been worn & auctioned off to benefit causes like breast cancer & heart disease awareness, the ECHL club has also sported numerous designs for other occasions.
Special sweaters have been created for St. Patrick’s Day, Veterans Day, Mardi Gras and even Friday the 13th. But it’s just not calendar dates that are honored, as Wranglers wear has celebrated such Vegas institutions as Elvis Presley and the Blue Man Group.
Now, if they ever unveil a Wayne Newton jersey, we’re there!
